Chic Soup

I made homemade chicken noodle soup today... for the very first time

I've made soup before, maybe once or twice but it was never very good. This time I got it right.
I didn't "make" the noodles but worked hard on the rest. No store bought stock added, no bouillon cube and it was so so so flavorful.


Plus the homemade bread. Yummy, baked not fried, soft and delicious.
The whole family enjoyed!!!

I was dreading making a pasta salad for biggest bro's party tomorrow. It's one of many things needed to be done to help prepare. After some motivation...

(oops, I bought this for tomorrow)

(oops, guess I'll have to get more... shh)

Anyway, it turned out to be fun (thank you Jamaica) and colorful (thank you bell peppers) and musical (thank you ipod classic) and tomorrow it will be delicious (thank you me)

I remember hubs and I lived in our first apartment. It was only a one bedroom and my first boy was only 1 month old. I was sitting in a chair watching the Today show feeding him, same as most mornings. I have no idea what they were talking about before they cut to this story. I remember one plane had hit and they were showing footage of the building while doing commentary and we saw the second plane approach and make impact before the reporters even knew it had happened. I remember the fear people felt, the sadness, the anger, the want to do something... the unity, if only for a moment, of an otherwise  divided nation. At this time it didn't matter what 'party' you were, if you agreed with war or not, all the issues weren't issues for a moment. For a moment this made everybody feel, talk, dream, think and/or live differently.

Picture Perfect

I realize there are many reasons my mom loves me. Number one might be my charming, outgoing, fun loving, weird personality. 

Number two might be my strength and courage and ability to protect her, trust me you wanna back down from this gun fight.

Number three might be how smart I am, you see here I'm already teaching others.
Or it might be my ability to stay untraceable to anyone tracking me down. I can avoid eye contact and make people only see parts of me so I am unidentifiable... see below

Or this part might really piss her off since these were almost perfect pictures but I can't sit my ass still for two frickin seconds.
I like to go with my first idea though!!
